We are delighted to advise that the MediaWorks Foundation has selected Garden to Table as a National Charity Partner for 2017/2018.
The Mediaworks Foundation’s vision is that every child and young person in New Zealand has the chance to reach their full potential. They work very closely with selected national charities to develop strategies and campaigns that inform and influence, raise mass awareness and funds to support each charity’s community outcomes.
Sarah Cotter, Head of the MediaWorks Foundation, says: "We are very excited to work in partnership with the Garden to Table Trust for the next year through the MediaWorks Foundation's National Charity Partnership Programme. Giving kids opportunities to get their hands dirty and to grow, harvest, prepare and share real food will make a real difference to how children think and engage with food. It's so important to understand where food comes from, and we believe that teaching kids from an early age will help them to make better food choices as they grow up."
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Sarah and the MediaWorks Foundation Managing Committee for their support of Garden to Table. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to ensure primary schools all around New Zealand are aware of the Garden to Table food education programme and how to integrate it into their own school curriculum. We can’t wait to get started!
